No thanks. All of Toyota’s cars are a bit too over stylized for me.

We all like something different and IMO that is just butt ugly. Belongs in a Transformer movie.

I just shopped the Camry, Accord and a few others. The 2018 "6" stood out as the best car for the best price without looking like something a 16 year old would want.

I'm pretty sure that the quote that Byakuya has in his signature says it all for me...

First off, this Youtube star just needs to accept his lot in life as a used car saleperson. Thanks, but I can read a spec sheet just as well as the next guy.

The new Camry looks nice and has the features people want - no doubt about it - and I'm sure they will sell a shit-ton of them without an issue. But let's face it, the Mazda 6 has its place as the niche 3rd place runner in this segment. From what I see, the 6 and even Mazda as a brand is for those that don't want to look like everybody else. Those that value the overall driving experience rather than "what will my neighbors think?" factor. Those that want a car they can keep looking at from the window in their house or looking at while walking away in a parking lot because it just looks so damn sharp. Ever wonder why they haven't changed the rear end on these cars in 4+ years? It's because it just works!

These are the things that made me want another Mazda. These are what drew me to the 3rd gen 6. Yes, the new Camry is a fine looking mobile and I'm sure it'll drive really nice too, but I value a little bit of distinctiveness, uniqueness and individualism in my cars. Mazdas come with a rich racing heritage as the underdog that actually comes as a merit to me as well.

Sure, this new Camry will likely be more of a car than <2018 Mazda 6 models. But I can't say it would be worth the premium from buying a used 6 versus a new Camry. Especially if you buy expecting to keep the car as long as it will run.

Did he say $37,000 for the 4 cyl engine?! Is this in Canada or is that $USD? For $37K it better have seats stuffed with fur from extinct animals. Give me the 6 Signature for less with the upgraded engine, better interior, and an exterior that’s not dotted with warts like the front view camera and other over the top styling queues. Everything I’ve read says the Camry is improved but the Accord is still the better car. The real comparison will be Accord<>6 and even 6 versus TLX, A4, other entry level cars to see if Mazda is really punching above their weight class.

First: Taste is incredibly subjective, so we're not all going to agree.

- Better looking than previous Camry's? Yes.
- Decent-enough looking that I wouldn't mind if I HAD to drive one? Yes.
- Better looking than the 3rd gen 6? No.
- Worth the same amount as the brand new Turbo 6? Not even close.
